teed about include senator john kerry, somebody very prominent and helped prep the president for the debate. susan rice the u.n. ambassador has also been talked about leading contender. she got caught up in the whole benghazi situation. the famous now infamous sunday morning talk show interviews that were confusing. that may hurt her chances. we will see. the other big name out there is eric holder, the attorney general, whether or not he will stay or go. today he addressed that take a listen. that's something i'm in the process of trying to determine. the first step has already occurred the president has been reelected and i will have to think about can i contribute in a second term. sit down and talk with him. >> he has obviously been through a lot of controversy. the fact that he is even considering the possibility is obviously getting people to think that he is one person who might leave some time in the near future. the other person to watch would be tim geithner the treasury secretary. jack lu the white house staff is one of the leading contender ifs geithner does go. h
kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu

? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
. bush defeated john kerry, killed with recrimination and remorse. what could we have done. all of that is healthy ultimately. but that should not be interpreted by this president as a foundation of his strength or source of republican weakness. it is a process of rebuilding strength. as we look at what he said today, he said he wants to talk about balance. but didn't talk about spending cuts. all of these -- more than 20 new taxes will not amount to the same amount of money. it will be about 60% of the total deficit. that's wait amounts to. so it's going to have to be what the president alluded to vaguely as balance, and whatever they agree to. there will have to be sharp, tough decisions on what will be cut in this federal budget. it's unsustainable. one thing that cheers me and should cheer everyone concerned about responsible fiscal policy is that this president doesn't have any choice. by the way, ultimately neither does baron or mcconnell. we are watching all of the prolific spending, the irresponsibility come crashing down around our heads. the markets cannot suffer much
's talking about nominating john kerry as secretary of defense and susan rice, a woman who misled the american people about a terrorist attack, as secretary of state. that is the -- those would be the acts of a man who is itching for a fight with the republican congress on foreign policy. megyn: i do want to say this, simon, is -- so he has this liberal think tank called nxn, and at ndn.org if you go to simon rosenberg blogs, you will see simon's full defense of susan rice, and it is an interesting read, and it espouses your position well, because i missouri you've taken a lot of incoming -- [laughter] >> particularly here, megyn. megyn: i recommend people check it out and make up your own minds. >> thanks, megyn. >> thank you. megyn: well, we saw one more dramatic moment on libya yesterday when our own ed henry asked the president what he would say to the families who lost loved ones in this benghazi that day about the lack of answers? here's the president's answer, in part. >> i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly, as i already have.
interesting watching all of this move around. senator john kerry for the past month or so, there's been a lot of buzz about him, perhaps as secretary of state, that he was interested in that. it sounds like the president may have other plans for him. >> reporter: yes, possibly defense secretary. kerry is a navy veteran and he was very involved in the president's re-election effort. kerry played governor mitt romney in the president's debate prep. his name had been floated as secretary of state. but if ambassador rice gets tapped for that job the post reports that senator kerry may get the nod to the pentagon. kerry's o*fs will say that quote senator kerry's only focus is as senior senator from massachusetts. leon panetta says he's focusing on looming se sequestration defense and budget cuts and other defense challenges. he also says it's no secret that he wants to get back to his private life in california. martha. martha: we will see. molly, thank you very much. bill: if you had a vineyard in california -- judge you'd want to get back there too. bill: you'd probably be daydreaming about it a

for the secretary of state position john kerry would like lee be easily confirmed in the senate. though are mentioning susan rice as somebody for that position. she has been disqualified and disqualified herself by the statements shy made five days after the attack. you need somebody with sound judgment willing to ask tough questions and to all of america this did not seem to be a spontaneous demonstration about a video. it seemed to be a terrorist attack and that is exactly what it turned out to be. jenna: would you support senator kerry as the next defense secretary? >> let's see who the president nominates and we'll go forward from there. i believe senator kerr rewould be confirmed by the senate. jenna: we look forward to hearing from you. i know this is a closed briefing but an important start to a series of hearings over the next several weeks. nice to have you back with us. we look forward to speaking with you again. >> thank you, jenna. rick: gasoline rationing coming to an end in the garden state. governor chris christie in new jersey making that announcement as fema approved $1
